Guthrie/Foxx May Or May Not Be Done With Album Soon

Belgian website Sideline reports of significant progress in a project between former Ultravox singer John Foxx and ex-Cocteau Twin Robin Guthrie.

The headline claims "Cocteau Twins member finishes collaboration with John Foxx" while the item states that "Guthrie is close to finishing a collaboration with Foxx."

The site includes an apparent present-day quote ("Foxx has this to say") which triggered my Spidey-sense.

It wasn't unusual to not find the news at Foxx or Guthrie's official site, but the news wasn't anywhere else, which was less expected and confirmation would have been good since the article seemed "off". Particularly if something seems off, it's good to poke further (unless the something involves electricity).

Some searching around turned up the source of the quote: it's from an October 12th 2005 post on Foxx's official website. Foxx had that to say, over a year ago. As of October 18th, 2006, Guthrie wrote that his "primary purpose" is "mixing tracks" for his upcoming Harold Budd album.

Last week, Foxx and collaborator Louis Gordon released From Trash, their fourth album together.

Nov. 24 - Manchester - Academy 3

Nov. 25 - Coventry - Coventry Colosseum

Nov. 26 - London - 93 Feet East

Nov. 28 - Amsterdam - Paradiso 65 (Foxx writes that it is his understanding that tickets for the July 19 show will be honored for this rescheduled show).

Nov. 30 - Rome - Rashomon Club

Dec. 1 - Milan - Transilvania Live

Dec. 2 - Scandiano, Italy - Club Corallo (show location changed from Gate 52 in Verona)
